DescriptionThe Practical Pig Opening Title Concept Drawing (Walt Disney, 1939). Practical Pig points to the shadowy silhouette of the Big Bad Wolf in this original concept drawing. This Dick Rickard-directed short was the second-to-last Silly Symphony cartoon, and the fourth and final Disney cartoon to star The Three Pigs. This is a rare graphite drawing for the opening title card. Rendered in graphite on 12 field 5-peghole paper, it features a beautifully detailed image of Practical Pig who measures 3" x 3.75" set beneath the cartoons title and casting an almost imperceptible image of the wolf in the background. This concept was not used and is almost certainly the only one of its kind ever to exist. The 82-year old drawing shows minor handling, toning and edge wear.
